Crocheting & Praying...

Crocheting and Praying...
Two things I rely on daily. Praying comes easy to me, but crocheting not as easily as it once did.  There was a time before MG when I could crochet for hours and hours.  Now with MG, I crochet in short spurts. I work around medication times and muscle strength. I find both to be meditative and contemplative. This is a great time for me to say my rosary. With each cross stitch I make, it reminds of Jesus on the cross and the sacrifice he made for us. As the afghans begin to grow I think of the family, friends, loved ones, and complete strangers that will be warmed by the love and faith that went into each stitch. 

For every project I complete I am truly thankful. Although I'm not as strong as I once was, I am blessed to be able to continue to create.These two projects were completed yesterday. The striped lapghan is a gift for a friend of my sister's, who resides in a  nursing facility. 

The other, I call "Bubblegum" was meant as a Christmas gift. Life got in the way, so now it will be a "just because" gift.
 Thank you to all my friends for your continued prayers and well wishes, they are truly appreciated.


  1. WOW!!! You are one talented lady! I've never been able to crochet or knit. I didn't have the patience before, and now I can't hold the needles! You do BEAUTIFUL work! But I would expect nothing less.
    Praying you have a BLESSED Easter.
    Love you!

  2. Kerri, it's not as easy as it once was, but I can't imagine not being able to crochet. It was touch and go in the beginning. I could barely hold the hook and was only able to do a few stitches at a time.

    Easter Blessing to you as well my dear friend!!

  3. You do have talent with prayer! I hope you feel better now...
